From tonight on Magic has 38 games left out of which 15 games are winnable (3 each against BOS and ATL). All they need to do is to win 7 more, and at 40-42 they will make it to the playoffs. It is not beyond the realm of reality to win some games against quality teams at home when the team gets all injured players back. The pros of such success would be the inertia entering the next season and increasing the possibilities of recruiting free agents. The cons would be that the inadequacies of the front office and the coach would be masked from exposure. Regardless, in my view, the pros outweigh the cons, especially in terms of increasing the odds of the franchise remaining in town.
